Description: The Stand-Off Missile (SOM) is a family of modular cruise missiles developed by Roketsan to meet the requirements of the Turkish Air Force (TuAF) with the aim pointing at operational flexibility. The missile family features a wide range of high-precision guidance technologies and warheads to hit a variety of high value targets such as SAM sites, exposed aircraft, strategic assets, command and control centers, warships etc. The fire-and-forget air-launched missile has a maximum range of 250 kilometers and is intended to hit both stationary and moving surface targets. The TuAF has deployed the SOM missile family on its upgraded F-4E / 2020 and its F-16C/D Block 40 fighter jets. Besides, there is an agreement with Airbus for the integration of SOM cruise missile on the Eurofighter Typhoon multirole aircraft.

The SOM-B1 low observable cruise missile has a range in excess of 100 nautical miles equipped with a high explosive (HE) blast fragmentation warhead. The guidance system is based upon a combination of inertial navigation system (INS), global positioning system (GPS), terrain reference navigation (TRN), Image Based Navigation (IBN), Infrared Imaging Seeker plus automatic target acquisition (ATA). The TuAF has deployed the SOM-B1 cruise missile on its F-4E and F-16C/D Block 40 jets.
